Explorer 2.0

Detects more than 50 antibiotics in food in a single assay with total flexibility in the number of samples.

 

Are you worried about ruining the production of fermented products due to the presence of antibiotics in the raw material?
Are you worried about complying with the maximum residue limits established by the European legislation?
Are you worried about the presence of antibiotics in feed?

 

HOW DOES IT HELP YOU?

 

Explorer helps you to screen more than 50 antibiotics from 8 groups, thus avoiding problems in the manufacture of fermented products, as well as to comply with the maximum residue limits established by the European Union.

TEST PRINCIPLE

EXPLORER 2.0 test is based on the growth inhibition of Geobacillus stearothermophilus bacterium. In a specific culture medium and under suitable conditions, the spores of this bacterium germinate and multiply, acidifying the medium, causing a color change in the culture medium from blue to yellow. If the food sample contains an antimicrobial concentration higher than the test detection limit, the bacterial growth is inhibited and therefore the color change of the medium will not occur.
